TEENAGE striker Sam Dalby has left Leeds United to join Premier League side Watford for an undisclosed fee.

Dalby joined Leeds from Leyton Orient in January 2018, signing a two and a half year deal and joining up with Carlos Corberan's under-23s.

The 19-year-old then headed out on loan to Sky Bet League Two side Morecambe last season, where the striker made two appearances from the substitute's bench.

Dalby leaves without having made a single appearance for United's first team having earlier featured 19 times for Orient, scoring once.

The striker will be part of Hornets’ development squad during the 2019/20 season with the forward one of five young recruits announced by Watford, alongside Jamal Balogun, Cameron Green, Joseph Hungbo and Henry Wise.

Balogun, 19, and Green, 20, are both full-backs who have joined from Reading while 19-year-old winger Hungbo arrives from Crystal Palace.

Wise, also 19, is a former Derby County midfielder.

Dalby has signed a two-year deal with an additional one-year option.
